Venue:Anna Freud National Centre for Children & Families, 12 Maresfield Gardens London NW3 5SU
Duration:09:30 - 16:30
Extra Info:This course explores the way we work with non-mentalising in depressed and anxious patients in order to restore our patients’ mentalising and reflective capacities. This will be achieved through the use of teaching, clinical illustrations, video clips, demonstrations and role plays. Some knowledge of Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy is required: you may have completed the training and be a DIT practitioner or supervisor; you may be mid-way through the training or you may be working as a psychotherapist or psychologist who is familiar with this brief psychotherapy model. This course is a useful introduction to the area of mentalising but does not take the place of the more in-depth 3 day MBT training which primarily focuses on the use of mentalisation with borderline personality disorder.

The course will cover:

• Practical applications of mentalization based therapy techniques in brief psychodynamic work with depressed and anxious patients

• Recognising breaks in mentalization in this patient group

• Techniques for restoring mentalization in our patients and ourselves

• Mentalizing the transference and addressing breaches in the therapeutic alliance
